The NHL playoffs never lack for excitement.

Every year there are unexpected upsets (Go Colorado!!) and tension-filled series.

The Chicago Blackhawks’ Western Conference quarterfinal match-up with the Nashville Predators has been no different.

The Preds stole game 1 Friday night at the United Center leaving the Hawks in a must win situation Sunday.

After some nervous moments early and some great saves by rookie goalie Antti Niemi, the Hawks finally got offensive and pulled out a 2-0 win to even the series as it heads to Music City USA.

Last night was my first game of the playoffs and I definitely noticed an elevated sense of urgency.

I shot the action but I concentrated on the emotion.

I am off to Tennessee tomorrow with the hopes that the Hawks will return to Chicago with at least one win from the trip.
